    What can I use for gasket on MP 85mm Throttle Body

    This may be a dumb question, but what should I use to seal between the 85mm MagnumPowers Throttle Body and the Inlet Plenum?

    I was thinking LocTite Red like what is used on the blower top (from Ford anyway) or some people use Permatex Copper RTV on the intercooler tubes/top, but I have never seen anyone talk about gasket material between the TB and the plenum.

    Thanks!

    Use RTV. Works like a charm, cures right away.

    What color?

    There are many different "flavors" to choose from. Blue, Red, Copper, etc.

    The most popular that I have run into on the SC boards is the copper, but want to make sure that I do it right the first time.

    Once this thing is assembled and sealed, I dont see myself taking it apart for quite some time.


    THANKS!!

    Mike,

    I used the copper RTV to seal the TB, Plenum and SC top. A thin coat (smear on with fnger) works great and dries quick enough to drive the car as soon as you finish the job.

    PS: On your new TB, check that screws in the throttle plate were sealed with thread locker, if not put a drop on each screw.
